Emorie: Tears of happiness
Although we hope to get all animals placed into adoptive homes as quickly as possible, some animals --especially cats-- are often scared by their ordeal and are very shy or even seem upset while they are in an adoption enclosure. These animals often take some time before someone finally appreciates and adopts them. Emorie was such a cat. Although she's a gorgeous young cat, almost all black with a tiny blaze of white on her chest and sporting a cropped right ear as the mark of her early life on the street, she was very shy at first.
One of our amazing adoption center volunteers, Pam Couchell, has a special affinity for black cats and wasn't put off by Emorie's early hiding and even growling. She was also on hand this past weekend when Emorie was adopted! Here is what Pam wrote on Facebook:
I know in the world of rescue you really shouldn't have a 'favorite'. But every so often there is one that comes into your life that just changes you. In my life that was Emorie. Something about her changed me in the short 3 or 4 months that she was at ReTails. I watched her transform from the scaredest kitty to one with so much love and affection. I truly wanted her to find a new home where she could run, jump, and play, and not live in the cages for one more day...but I also knew when that day happened, I would cry. There would be tears of joy and tears of sorrow just because I knew I would miss her so much. Well, it finally happened this weekend...and I am so glad that I was there to meet them. So, as you go on to your new furever home with your new family, my sweet girl, the picture above is for you.
